Adina Grigore at Sprout Wellness
You wouldn’t eat pesticide-ridden tomatoes, would you? (Sadly, you probably do more than you think). Well, given the choice, we’re sure you wouldn’t treat your skin with unnatural chemicals either—that’s Adina Grigore’s philosophy. Her Sprout Wellness skin care line (handmade in Greenpoint!) prides itself on its organic simplicity. Grigore uses only natural ingredients that you’ve heard of (weird shit like “salt” and “honey”), and is committed to keeping the price lower than your groceries. She also gets her shea butter from a self-empowered women’s collective in Togo. Which is in Africa. Which rules.

  • All food produced at Bushwick City Farm is free to the community. It is distributed at the garden on a first come/first serve basis to those in need, we NEVER exchange food for volunteer work or donations! We also have free clothing & educational programs. All materials used to build the farm are reycled from dumpsters, nothing is ever sold or exchanged, our volunteers do not recieve food in exchange for their labor (thats why they are called volunteers).
